2017 MINI Clubman review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2017 Mini Clubman?

The 2017 Mini Clubman is a wagonlike compact that seats five. It competes with other compact hatchback models such as the Mazda3 hatchback, Ford Focus hatch and the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. Trims include the Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. The Cooper and Cooper S are offered in front-wheel drive and All4 all-wheel drive. The John Cooper Works trim provides all-wheel drive standard.

What's New on the 2017 Mini Clubman?

For the 2017 model year, no significant changes have been made.

How Does the 2017 Mini Clubman Compare to Other Compact Hatchbacks?

The Mini Clubman's charming, quirky design and spirited performance outshines rivals like the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen and Ford Focus hatchback. Its interior, however, is still lacking, with frustrating controls and a cabin that falls short when it comes to ergonomics.

What Features in the 2017 Mini Clubman Are Most Important?

The Mini Clubman is powered by a standard 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that delivers 134 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Drivers looking to boost performance further can opt for the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine on the Cooper S, which is capable of producing 189 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic. Significant standard features include cloth upholstery, cruise control, air conditioning and a 6.5-inch multimedia screen. As required in all new vehicles, the Mini Clubman is also outfitted with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Significant available features include LED headlights, power front seats, a panoramic moonroof, leather upholstery, a navigation system, an 8.8-inch dashboard screen, a backup camera, adaptive suspension and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Should I Buy the 2017 Mini Clubman?

Drivers looking for plenty of cargo space and backseat legroom will be satisfied with what the Mini Clubman has to offer. Shoppers on a budget who still want a vehicle with the latest features may want to look at other options. This model can get a bit pricey if you decide to add on extras.

MINI for Commuting

Researched to find a car that was fun to drive and good on gas. Decided on a 2017 MINI which I purchased through Carvana online. My used car arrived with just over 27,000 miles and a few months remaining on the original warranty. The MINI is fun to drive, looks good, handles well, and I enjoy driving it on my 80-mile round trip commute daily. Good on gas, it's nice to be able to switch between a Sport and Eco mode (not sure if this is more of a gimmic or not but while driving in Eco mode I seem to "Save" about 8 miles/day. I'm happy with my purchase and would purchase again.
